UserForms EditableFormField Column Clean task

This task is used to clear unused columns from EditableFormField

The reason to clear these columns is because having surplus forms can break form saving.

Currently it only supports MySQL and when it is run it queries the EditableFormField class for the valid columns, it then grabs the columns for the live database it will create a backup of the table and then remove any columns that are surplus.

To run the task login as Admin and go to to http://yoursite/dev/tasks/UserFormsColumnCleanTask


I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the module, bugfixers, testers, clients who use the module and everyone that submits new features.

A big thanks goes out to Jan Düsedau for drawing the custom icon set for the form fields.
